Last we featured MURS, he was celebrating the Yuletide on CREAM (Christmas Rules Everything Around Me). Two weeks into the new year, the West Coast stalwart’s feeling considerably less merry, and it’s all thanks to a certain woman. On new single The Pain Is Gone, the artist describes the rise and fall of a romantic affair, from its beginning as an online flirtation to the devastating realization that he’d fathered a child with the girl in question. Motown’s Apollo Brown crafts a mournful chopped-soul-sample beat to back his cautionary bars. One of two forthcoming Mello Music Group compilations, Mandala Vol. 2, Today’s Mathematic is slated to hit record stores and online retailers Tuesday, January 28.
